This is one of those weddings that really no matter how hard you plan and have the best hopes for, things will change and yet, it all works out! As we were preparing during the week, we kept seeing issues with rain popping up, 80% and then 60% and then back up. The big plans were to have the ceremony and reception outside at the Sibley Center in beautiful Callaway Gardens. As Saturday drew closer, we knew that it was more than likely going to rain and things would change and they did. Everything was actually moved to the Discovery Center which provides a stunning view and beautiful backdrop. But to tell you how things worked out and how God looked on us with favor, as we photographed the bridal party and Ali and Jared’s blinded first look, the rain held off and actually formed a horseshoe around the area of Callaway. Even still, as the day progressed, the rain and clouds moved out and the afternoon was beautiful. We loved Ali’s idea of seeing Jared before hand but keeping him blindfolded as she read both of their letters to each other; it was such an emotional moment to capture and yet it still did not take away from Jared seeing her as she walked down the aisle. Getting to work with Jodie Creswell, wedding plaanner, was an honor as well. She was able to make the ceremony and reception relocation as seamless and easy as possible; having professionals like that are priceless! For that matter getting to work with Kim Nelson of Bloomwoods ( we are always amazed by her work) and Fran of The Cake Lady, reassures us that we are getting to work with the best to provide a dream wedding for our couples.
Be blessed! Wes and Meg
